My first couple of days in London were unreal.
I constantly had to remind myself that this wasn’t a dream, and that one of my lifelong wishes were actually coming true.
Although I was exhausted, I got lost almost immediately, and I felt extremely overwhelmed at the amount of brand new people I was going to be living with and the general unfamiliarity of the environment, I was mostly just stoked to be there.
It was crazy to think to myself that I was actually studying abroad in LONDON, something I had dreamt of for as long as I could remember, and here I was living that dream.
1- Getting off on the wrong tube station after leaving the airport and having to trek 4 miles across hyde park with all of my luggage… I was sore for days, folks.
2- Seeing platform 9 3/4 on September 1 (Harry Potter’s 1st day at Hogwarts: A historical moment for Harry Potter enthusiasts everywhere.)
3- Discovering that ice cream is ten times better in Europe.
4- Discovering that jet lag is a real thing.
5- Seeing Big Ben, Oxford Street and the London Eye for the first time.
